The Coffee Constellation is very important to me. It would make me ecstatic to see original designs, and I will be putting a Pinterest link below to help give you some ideas that I really enjoy. They probably span across different ranges of modern to classic, but these are things that I enjoy and admire.
I always enjoy nice typography. The logo I am more thinking of involves imagery and text. As we are drawn to things that we have seen before, I will try to stay unbiased and open to things that I haven't seen.
For the business cards, I'd be open to both vertical and horizontal business card designs. If the design would fit better horizontally, then that would be the best option. On the informational side, it would be impressive to see something other then just a listing of my name and such. A readable, but creative way to put the info on there would be ideal.
To explain the title a little, you already know that the blog revolves around coffee, but the constellation part comes in since a constellation of stars is three dimensional. Three giving meaning to the three different parts of the blog and that this blog is multi-dimensional, talking about many different topics that will open up people's perspectives.
An idea that I have been thinking about have been if there were various french presses and different breaking methods underneath a creative typography saying "The Coffee Constellation" with a thin circle white circle around the presses and the title. How to incorporate constellations or something relating to that could be a challenge, but that was just something floating in my brain.
Once a couple logos pop up that are heading in the right direction, I will change the contest into a guaranteed prize! I want to be here for you and be able to pay you for your hard work and creativity.
As I have done a lot of research and read many reviews of what designers say about 99designs, I will be giving every designer that takes time to create a design for this project that is dear to me, a fair chance and feedback. Finalists will be chosen, and for someone who has put time and effort into revisions, I would like to work with finalists on 1-on-1 projects in the future along with the winner.
Thank you for taking time to make a design if you do and for helping my dream come true.
